Proteus Device is a secure, Linux-based handheld (not a smartphone) | Liliputing

The Proteus Device from XXLSEC is a handheld computer with a 5 inch touchscreen display and a secure, Linux-based operating system called PriveOS.

At first glance, it looks a lot like a smartphone. But the Proteus Device does not have a cellular modem and it’s not designed to make phone calls.

What it does have that you won’t find on most phones, is an Ethernet port.
A handheld with an Ethernet port? I guess Mr Robot is going to plug that into E Corp's server farm...

I translated the post in Dutch:
Hallo en hartelijk welkom
aan iedereen die nieuw is op diaspora*
We zijn heel blij dat je hebt besloten om diaspora* eens te proberen. Het is fantastisch dat je je bij ons hebt aangesloten!
We hopen dat je hier snel je weg vindt en ervan geniet om in contact te komen met mensen en gedeelde informatie.
Hier zijn een paar tips om aan de slag te gaan:
* Er zijn enkele stapsgewijze zelfstudies op onze projectwebsite over de basisprincipes van hoe diaspora* werkt en hoe u in contact kunt komen met mensen. Er is een link naar deze informatiepagina's in de zijbalk, mocht je ze ooit in de toekomst willen lezen. Er is ook een Help-sectie in de app die je kunt openen via je gebruikersmenu (aan de rechterkant van de koptekstbalk).
* U kunt mensen zoeken op naam ofals u het diaspora* ID weet, op diaspora* ID (dat eruit ziet als een e-mailadres), vanuit het zoekveld in de kopbalk. Je kunt mensen uitnodigen om met je mee te doen in diaspora* door ze een link te sturen naar onze projectwebsite, van waaruit ze hun eigen pod kunnen kiezen om mee te registreren. Je vrienden hoeven niet op dezelfde pod te zitten als jij om verbinding te maken en met u te communiceren.
* Een goede manier om in contact te komen met mensen is door enkele #tags te volgen van onderwerpen die u interesseren (misschien #music, #photography, #linux of #activism ... wat u ook interesseert) zodat u inhoud over die onderwerpen kunt zien in uw stream. Je kunt dan mensen volgen waarvan je de berichten interessant vindt, door ze in een van je aspecten te plaatsen.
* Als je vragen hebt, plaats dan iets met de tag #question, #vraag of #help en mensen zullen proberen je te helpen. Zorg ervoor dat je je bericht openbaar maakt, zodat iedereen die je kan helpen het bericht kan zien!

diaspora* heeft enkele zeer eenvoudige communityrichtlijnen, waarvan we hopen dat iedereen zich in staat zal voelen om zich eraan te hoduen, zodat alle leden hier de best mogelijke ervaring kunnen hebben.

We proberen diaspora* voortdurend te verbeteren, bugs te repareren, prestaties te verbeteren en nieuwe functies toe te voegen. Maar hoe snel we dit kunnen doen, wordt beperkt door de tijd die ontwikkelaars hebben. Om diaspora * sneller te verbeteren, hebben we meer ontwikkelaars nodig! Als je je net hebt aangemeld en kan programmeren of iemand kent die dat kan en die misschien geïnteresseerd is om bij ons team te komen, neem contact op!
♥ diaspora *

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora\*


We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora\* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
  • If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
diaspora\* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.

We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

<3 diaspora\*

Relative paths and the find command


This past weekend I had an experience that I'd like to share with you.
It's a lesson in how our assumptions can lead to unintended
consequences, and how to undo them when they occur.

I had a command running that would check a directory to see if there
were any old files in it. Rather than delete those old files I instead
opted to use gvfs-trash to move them to the trash on my Linux system
(there are other options like gio and trash-cli that will do the
same.

This script was set up as such:

+--------------------------------------+--------------------------------------+
| 1 | #!/bin/bash |
| 2 | |
| 3 | # Need trailing slash for links |
| 4 | TARGET=/path/to/directory |
| 5 | DAYS=120 |
| 6 | DELETE_DAYS=180 |
| 7 | |
| 8 | cd $TARGET |
| 9 | echo "Checking for files older t |
| 10 | han $DAYS days..." |
| 11 | find . -type f -ctime +$DAYS -ex |
| 12 | ec stat -c "%n %y" {} \; | sort |
| | echo "Deleting files older than |
| | $DELETE_DAYS days..." |
| | find . -type f -ctime +$DELETE_D |
| | AYS -print -exec gvfs-trash {} \; | |
| | sort |
+--------------------------------------+--------------------------------------+

Now some of you might already be groaning with seeing code like this,
and can guess what happened. Now that I've seen what can fail in this
code I also see it too, but for those who haven't experienced how this
can fail I can elaborate on how this particular script failed me, and
denote the disastrous consequences that followed.

This script ran perfectly fine for many months. Each time it would cd
to the target directory, run the find command, and then let me know what
it was about to delete. Sometimes I would go into that directory and
touch the files to keep it from moving those files to the trash. Life
was good.

The path that this script looks at is located on a NFS mount. It's
actually a Western Digital MyBook connected via USB to a Synology NAS.
The location is under /mnt/usbshare, and the directory under TARGET is
a link to that particular directory (in my home directory).

The details aren't quite as important in this scenario. What is
important is the question "what happens when /mnt/usbshare isn't
available.

That becomes a more interesting issue. Since the mount for
/mnt/usbshare wasn't connected the cd command fails. So the current
working directory (cwd) is not set to the location that I was expecting
it to be set. Instead the current working directory is set by other
means.

In this case it was my home directory.

In some languages a command failing will cause the whole script to
abort. An unhandled exception in Python will abort the script. In a
bash script a command like cd failing just returns a non-zero
result. If you're not checking for that result then it just gets
discarded. The script continues on unabated.

I hope that sound you're making is the sound of enlightenment, because I
got a rather large dose of it this past Saturday.

The rest of the script not only checked all of the files that were older
than $DAYS, it also began running gvfs-trash on any file that hadn't
been touched in over 180 days.

The system it's been running on has files that are most assuredly more
than 180 days old. Files like my ssh keys, my gpg keys, git repos that
haven't been touched in a while, pictures, gnome configuration files,
etc. etc.

How I noticed what was happening was because I couldn't ssh into the
system. My authorized_keys file was now in .local/share/Trash.

How I knew things were going into the trash was because I ran ps and
noticed that gvfs-trash was still running.

How I freaked out when I realized that all my ssh keys (save for three)
were now in the trash.

the find . command had dutifully run in the current working directory,
which was my home directory, and had proceeded to trash almost one
million files (336GB of files altogether).

Luckily GNOME doesn't automatically start purging files when the trash
gets to a certain size, or I would have been restoring from backup. Also
GNOME has a relatively easy way to figure out where a file came from.
The only problem I had was one of scale, and an issue getting anything
GNOME-related working because the configuration files for GNOME were now
all in the trash.

There's a command-line program called
trash-cli that is a
godsend. It's a command-line tool to work with the GNOME trash can.
It'll move files there, empty the trash, and restore files.
Unfortunately the restore process believes that you'll only be restoring
from a trash directory that is in the hundreds max. It never actually
got to the point where I could restore anything using the stock system.

Fortunately it was written in Python so I was able to adapt it to allow
me to short-circuit the user interface and just restore the files as it
encountered them.

My Saturday was spent babysitting this process, ensuring that it worked,
and checking the status of the backup restore that I was doing with
duplicity at the same time.

On Sunday morning I checked the status. It had finished, and after
bringing up Nautilus I was able to mop up the remaining files that
hadn't been automatically restored.

So far things appear to be working.

The moral of the story is don't use relative paths (., .., etc. )
for commands like find, especially if they're doing actions like
deleting or moving files. Chances are they'll work most of the time, but
when they don't work is when you'll be in big trouble.

To quote Jerry Pournelle of Chaos Manor: "I do these silly things so you
don't have to".

Desktop Linux Apps Running on the PinePhone [Video]| OMG! Ubuntu!

A big selling point of the PinePhone is that it supports the mainline Linux kernel, thus traditional Linux distros and regular desktop Linux software.
Now, desktop Linux apps are rarely tailored for touch input on a desktop, laptop or tablet screen, much less touch input on a space constrained mobile one.
But the ability to run Linux apps on the PinePhone device is something a fair few folks are curious about.

Pocket PC handheld Linux computer coming in 2020 for $199 and up (maybe - crowdfunding) | Liliputing

Sure, there’s a chance you could turn your old smartphone into a pocket-sized Linux computer by replacing the operating system. But if you’re looking for a purpose-built device with a touchscreen display, a QWERTY keyboard, and features you won’t typically find on phones (like 4 USB ports), the folks at Popcorn Computer have you covered.

Hallo zusammen,

schade.. mein Root-Server wurde mir bis 31.12.19 gekündigt. Die Möhre ist nun in die Jahre gekommen und wird damit nicht mehr weiter im Rechenzentrum betrieben. Da mir die Ersatzangebote des Unternehmens irgendwie nicht so günstig erscheinen wollte ich euch mal fragen ob jemand einen Root-Server Angebot empfehlen kann?

Auf dem System soll/muss ein Mailserver, Webserver mit entsprechendem Datenbankserver laufen. Ich denke so mind. 500GB sollte das System schon haben.

Librem 5 Linux Phone

Any thoughts?


Eventually, I would like to head in this direction. The Librem 5 is from Purism and runs $700. There's also the PinePhone (basically a Raspberry Pi phone) for only $150.

On the impoprtance of Wine


(Initial thoughts posted on Mastodon)

I think Wine (and emulators in general) are
going to be key for keeping control of our computers from being wrestled
away from us. Personal Computing (not just PCs but computing in general)
is being subsumed by cloud providers and subscription models and I for
one am not about to give up the idea of Personal Computing.

If there's anything that I've learned from 30+ years in computing is
that corporate interests are never in the users long-term interests.
Ever.

As Wine improves it gives another way to run Windows programs without
requiring Windows itself. Since Windows is becoming a subscription-based
operating system (don't kid yourself that it isn't) it'll be much more
vital to allow users an opportunity to break away from these models and
be able to run whatever software the user chooses.

I used to think that Wine was a convenience but now I'm more convinced
of the importance of the project as a whole.
